From 1 April 2019, under Making Tax Digital (“MTD”), businesses registered for VAT with a taxable turnover above £85,000 will need to keep their VAT records digitally and file their returns using Making Tax Digital-compatible software.

To help prepare, HMRC introduced a pilot scheme for qualifying businesses to test ahead of the Spring deadline. This allowed businesses to opt in and test the service before they are required to join.

As a firm, we have had numerous clients opt in to the pilot scheme all of whom we have successfully submitted their first MTD compliant VAT return for.

Are you ready for MTD?
